Missional theology as it has evolved in North America is not attending to the unique needs of African diaspora. It has failed to take note of African diaspora existential conditions. The African diaspora, stands at the intersection of multiple forces affecting global Christianity. It embodies distinctive theological elements that have the potential for redefining the understanding of theology of mission and ecclesiology within a global context. In this dissertation, I have laid the groundwork for developing a missional theology that is criticized, challenged, and influenced by the experience of AICs and the African theology. I have developed a more relevant and transformative missional theology for AICs, and an understanding of how the experience of AICs can inform North American missional theology. In attending to the above, I have argued that the North American missional theology developed in the past few decades (which is geared toward the needs of a mainline church declining in membership) has much to learn from the missional experiences of AICs.
